Hymns of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ

  Troparion of Christmas (Tone 4)

   Your Nativity, O Christ our God,
   Has shone to the world the Light of wisdom!
   For by it, those who worshipped the stars,
   Were taught by a Star to adore You,
   The Sun of Righteousness,
   And to know You, the Orient from on High.
   O Lord, glory to You!

  Kontakion of Christmas (Tone 3)

   Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One,
   And the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One!
   Angels with shepherds glorify Him!
   The wise men journey with a star!
   Since for our sake the Eternal God was born as a Little Child!

   Nativity Of Our Lord Christ Troparion (Tone 4)

   Mary was of David's seed,
   So she went with Joseph to register in Bethlehem.
   She bore in her womb the Fruit not sown by man.
   The time for the birth was at hand.
   Since there was no room at the inn,
   The cave became a beautiful palace for the Queen.
   Christ is Born, raising up the Image that fell of old!

   Nativity Of Our Lord Christ Kontakion (Tone 3)

   Today the Virgin comes to the cave
   to give birth to the Eternal Word.
   Hear the glad tidings and rejoice, O universe!
   Glorify with the angels and the shepherds
   the Eternal God, who is willing to appear as a little child!   


   Αγια νυχτα, σε προσμενουν
   με χαρα οι Χριστιανοι
   και με πιστη α νυμνουμε
   τον Θεο δοζολογουμε
   Μ'ε ενα στομα, μια φωνη,
   ναι, με μια φωνη


   Holy Night, they are waiting for you
   with joy the Christians
   and with faith we praise
   God, we glorify
   With one mouth, one voice
   yes, with one voice
